Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential Opportunity
Here is a link to a flyer offering a unique opportunity for your scouts to complete the residential section of their gold award.
Feel free to distribute it among any scouts that may be interested. The award criteria states that it should be done with unknown people but because of the way we allocate groups everyone gets to work with everyone else, therefore DofE are willing to take up to 3 people per group/unit. If you have other scouts we will be running 2 weeks next August and a further one next October.
Scout Enrolment Form - PRICE CHANGE, Note. Bronze £21, Silver £21 and Gold now £28.
Are you a Scout, Explorer Scout or Network Scout who likes Scouting but is looking for further challenge and a chance to learn some new skills?
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award gives you a chance to do all this, achieving personal goals and working as a team.
The award has three levels, bronze, silver and gold. Each has similar requirements, but a progressive level of skill and dedication. The Chief Scout's Platinum Award, the Chief Scout's Diamond Award and the Queen's Scout Award have similar requirements and can be completed alongside The Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme. You can complete any of these awards until your 25th birthday.
As well as being a great adventure, many employers highly regard the award and can give you the edge when looking for work in the future - a very worthwhile attribute to have on your CV.
